What's your carpet type?

With so many colors and textures to choose from, there's no reason to put off buying new carpet. Maybe you want to capture trendy shades of blue to make a statement, from timeless indigo and navy to of-the-moment marine tones. Carpeting made with reclaimed, recycled, and natural materials will add distinct texture and an earthy vibe. Patterns will help craft an exotic feel with bold shapes, chevrons, ikats, and Aztec prints.

Did we mention that carpeting adds warmth and comfort to your home by increasing the sound absorption and insulation, ensuring your floor is warm in winter and cool in summer?

There are many carpet styles and colors available and we invite you to browse our catalog HERE or visit Richie Ballance Flooring & Tile to view them in person.

Triexta carpet fiber

Triexta is a newly classified fiber made partially from corn sugar. Triexta has an excellent, permanent anti-stain property. It is resilient. The superior stain resistance makes it a good choice if you have pets or young children.

Nylon carpet fiber

Nylon outperforms other fibers in ease of maintenance, resilience, and durability. When you want the carpet to last a long time, have high-traffic areas in the home, or have pets and active kids, nylon is a good choice. High-quality nylon has a 'branded' label that says "100 percent; the manufacturer's name such as SmartStrand, Weave Tuft, Shaw, or Mohawk; nylon." Unbranded labels only say "100 percent nylon."

Polyester carpet fiber

Polyester is also stain resistant. It is very luxurious and soft underfoot. Polyester fiber carpet is available in vibrant and dark colors. It is harder to clean than nylon. The polyester may shed,and is not as durable as nylon. It is best suited for low-traffic areas such as bedrooms or households without pets or kids.

Olefin carpet fiber

Olefin is an inexpensive, attractive carpet fiber that is strong and fade-resistant. It is not as resilient as nylon. Frequently, olefin is made into a Berber carpet having a nubby weave that conceals dirt. Olefin is mildew, static, and stain resistant. It is often chosen for high-traffic areas such as play areas or family rooms.

The hundreds of styles and thousands of colors we have to choose from makes our selection of carpet one of the largest in Eastern North Carolina. Our 3000 square foot showroom, in Wilson, NC, exhibits the latest colors and styles of carpet. Ask our carpet customers from Wilson, Kinley, Lucama, Greenville, Elm City, and Bailey.
